St. Louis Cardinals OF Allen Craig is out of the starting lineup Thursday, July 3, with OF Oscar Taveras starting in right field. Craig is hitless in his last seven at-bats and is 6-for-34 on the current road trip. SS Jhonny Peralta is moving into the cleanup spot for the fourth time on the road trip.
Fantasy Tip: With Taveras back in the fold, daily lineup manuevering for fantasy purposes might be tricky. You'll have to consistently check the daily lineups to make sure your guy is starting.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta has gone 2-for-4 in each of the past three games and has homered in two of them.
Fantasy Tip: His early season struggles seem to be coming to an end. A lot of it was due to poor luck as he has hit the ball hard in a lot of at-bats. If you can buy low, now is the time.

The St. Louis Cardinals will take their time in developing Cuban SS Aledmys Diaz by having him serve as depth in the minor leagues. He's on the 40-man roster and will be optioned this spring. A solid March could allow him to start the year at Class AA Springfield.
Fantasy Tip: Diaz had to sit out a full year as MLB-mandated punishment for misrepresenting his age, so he's behind the curve to get involved heavily in St. Louis' plans this year. Jhonny Peralta's presence and four-year deal obviously complicate the 23-year-old's timetable, as well. Diaz could develop significant power for a shortstop, and keeper leaguers shouldn't hesitate to spend a farm-roster spot on him.

St. Louis Cardinals SS Jhonny Peralta expressed remorse for his past performance-enhancing drug transgressions Saturday, Jan. 18, and he indicated he wants to prove that the Cardinals made the right decision to look beyond his mistakes. "I want to show to the fans and to the people that it's not what everybody thinks about it," Peralta said. "I know I could play baseball before (this connection to Biogenesis). I know I can play baseball naturally. I have to show people that I can do it and that I can help."
